What is actually a suggested use per serving and/or daily use? In the red miniscoop (around 1/14 teaspoon)? It may be read in the original powder bag, but I move it to my container and i don't remember how it says in the original powder bag. In the website, it it confusing. They say the suggested use is 100mg, but they also suggest to consume 1g after workout. Does anybody know exactly how much (how many miniscoops) may I consume per serving and per day? Thanks in advance.
Every day I take it according to the provided information on my protein website after my hard work and exercises Without it I was feeling to much pain in my body muscles but now I feel little havy and tierd body muscles No painGoes Well With:Protein
Excellent value for money and very cost-effective. As for accurate weighing of doses I have found it easier to weigh out the powder on an electric scale and to use size "O" capsules in a filler tray of 50 capsules to obtain a consistent dose. Therefore 5 gms would give approx 100 mgs ALA per capsule, 10 gms would give 200 mgs etc. I particularly like to add the ALA to Milk thistle seed and Ginkgo leaf powders to give an additional therapeutic effect to memory/ brain circulation and liver function. I am a practicing professional Medical herbalist and also a power lifter and weight lifting coach so the quality of my diet and supplements are of vital importance to me and also my patients and those athletes I coach. MYPROTEIN products fit the bill! Highly recommended
The taste is really unpleasant, I've since switched to caps (4 per day), at first the burning sensation is still present but seemed to disappear after a few days use, proof of how effective these bad boys are can b seen in ur turds, HOLY MOLEY !!!
Just started taking after a decent review in Mens Health on Detox. Not commenting on effectiveness. However, it's a nasty swallow. Eating a Jalapeno pepper is the same feeling, it's just that you're not ready for a chilli in the morning with your coffee. The longer the drink the worse the experience, it cuts through everything. I would recommend 100mg in about 2 inches of waters (as if you are taking an Alka Seltzer). Stir in for a few seconds but it never totally dissolves. Then slam back it back like a shot and then chug a protein shake. I have the Total Breakfast every day so a few gulps of than calms the burning gullet down. It's a grim aftertaste and will ruin any drink you put it in. As an aside (after a previous comment) given Cranberry juice is an excellent alkali (hence women use for thrush) I am not sure if you should be mixing this acid with it if the end result is that it is neutralised. Not a scientist but I know the difference between acids and alkilis. Would be interested in an answer though. In short, treat it like an Alka Selzar shot and chug a shake down straight after. It's the only way.Goes Well With:Total Breakfast
The Alpha Lipoic Acid ALA has a burning taste when mixed in a glass of water. I cap it ad just use 600mg for appetite suppression.
Myprotein Alpha Lipoic Acid ALA needs to be drunk quickly. Also I would recommend drinking cranberry juice immediately followed, this reduces the amount of burning.
"This product needs to be drunk quickly, also i recommend drinking cranberry juice immediately followed, this reduces the amount of burning to nearly 0%."
"It is worth noting that ALA is used for heavy metal poisoning as it binds to metals, if someone is metal toxic without knowing it and they take ALA they will become very sick unless they know what they are doing with it. I take it for this reason on a very specific schedule and dosage. For me it is an essential component of my recovery."
"People are right about the...taste? It doesn't seem to have one, but it is definitely like swallowing red-hot chillis. It burns. It is also immiscible with a thin fluid, so I mix it into a paste of turmeric powder, ALC, beta-alanine, MgCl2, and black pepper. Then dilute down with fruit juice. But you can still feel the ALA. Not sure if it works, but I'm sure it does, Review 10 is very hard to argue with."
